    I've always liked those Sailrite sewing machines. I don't know if it's just my general curiosity of mechanical things or the nice anodized blue, but I've always liked those. I'm glad that it was behaving for the dodger work. That looks like a good work area. I was just looking through the...

    A new vario project

    400Ah of lithium will be great. We have 300Ah of lithium (Battle Born LiFePO4), and we are happy so far. I'm really pleased with how little the LiFePO4 batteries weigh. We went with a Victron SmartSolar MPPT charge controller and a Victron BMV-700 Battery Monitor. They are quite easy to...

    That is a hard decision. Even though these projects are very rewarding, they are a ton of work spanning so many months. When we got to the point that you two are at now, I was pretty tired and felt like I needed a break. I pushed though it, but I think it would have also been good to take a...

    I like the 1/2" acrylic idea. I think having a transparent divider will keep things feeling open. I bet you will like having the motorbike. If we had room for one, I think we would have done that redirection. I hope you like the way your outside corners turn out. I think they will look good...

    New Mog Life

    Those lights sure look good. I've been considering an upgrade for a while. It's on the list of desired upgrades. Michael

    Mercedes Sprinter 4x4 CrewCab Expedition Build in Canada

    That looks cold. What temp did it get down to, and how did your Planar heater do? Michael

    Those are cool steps. I haven't seen those before. The way that they stow away is great. In some applications, it would be cool to have a bench seat that works like that. The top of our bed platform is 26 inches from the floor. So the top of our mattress will be about 34-35 inches from the...

    Bigger tires...go faster?

    That's what I like about it. Its an overdrive, an underdrive, and you still have the stock ratio.

    Bigger tires...go faster?

    I think on a mog, the best place might be between the clutch and transmission. It might fit and the torque would be the lowest. It would be neat to get a three speed with crawling, 1:1, and overdrive. I'd pay a good bit for something like that if it was reliable and easy-ish to put in. Michael

    Bigger tires...go faster?

    That is interesting. On our U1300L, the shaft between the clutch and the transmission is actually pretty long. I bet something like that would fit. Michael

    It is looking so good! I like all the glossy panels. I think that was a good way to go. As a side note, your box looks so much roomier than ours. It's amazing how a little more length changes the look of the whole interior volume. Michael

    New Mog Life

    I'm sorry to hear that you had to get assistance, but I'm glad it was a simple fix. I think I'll go check to make sure that we have clearance between the compressed air line and the fuel pump on our truck. 350 liters of fuel for 2200 km is about 14.78 miles per gallon That's good mileage...

    2017 Australian Unimog camper for sale.

    That's interesting! I think I'd keep the mog, but it would be a hard choice. Also, if I lived in such a nice place, I'd probably travel less. Nice land!

    Mercedes LAF 1113 B family truck

    That is such a cool vehicle to build from. It will be a lot of work, but it will be really cool when finished. I look forward to seeing it transform. Before settling on our current Unimog, we very briefly considered a Bedford. I always loved the classic sheet-metal curves of older trucks...
